actually i’m aware of this template. However, it does not take into account the involved binary operator.
Am I missing something or is this template missing this customisation point?

A related follow up question, looking at the vectors operator*, e.g., if i want to express the resulting type of a scalar multiplication with mixed types like a Vector of ints with a double scalar type. How can I implement that? The return type of that function overload is determined by deduce_vec<A>::type which only takes into account the vector data type and not the type for the scalar.
